Summary note
"Winner of a 2020 MacArthur "genius" award for fiction that "interrogates culturally constructed notions of language, memory, and gender from a transnational perspective," Cristina Rivera Garza is a singular voice in contemporary letters, one who American readers are still discovering. New and Selected Stories brings together in English translation stories from across her career, including new writing not yet published in Spanish. It is a unique and remarkable body of work, and a window onto the ever-evolving stylistic and thematic development of one of the boldest, most original, most affecting writers in the world today"-- Provided by publisher.
